Even at the age of 89, he enjoyed looking at pathology slides under the microscope with his grandchildren.

Trish I know even 90 years is not enough with someone who you love deeply and who has profoundly impacted your life. I know your family must be very proud of the kind of man he was. May you find comfort in the coming months by treasuring the parts of him that live on through the person he has helped you become.
